An episode of NBC-TV's "Coke Time with Eddie Fisher". Eddie didn't have much time to learn the first song, so he forgets the words on live TV. The rest of the episode is much better of course. Eddie's Guest star in this episode is a young Florence Henderson (Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch"), Here she sings the song "I Have to Tell You" from the smash hit broadway play "Fanny". Also features original Coca-Cola commercials.

These little Coke Time shows are among the best looking, best preserved kinescopes I've ever seen. The quality is at least as good as that of many uploads to this site in which the action had been filmed directly. Of course, this episode is so flubbed up Mr. Fisher would probably have preferred that it not be preserved at all. Yet here it is, while so much truly classic live TV is lost. *sigh*

Have a Heart, Time Will Tell
Admittedly my username is about my feelings of a certain cartoon character from a recent cartoon I enjoy, but I still enjoyed watching Eddie Fisher and his guest performing music the old-fashioned way. In some ways, it's quite charming.
